The question is .. I got an old G5 and I would love Capture 2 or Capture 1 to work on that but my system is only upgradeable to 10.5.8 (PowerPC) so if anyone has good or bad results with the Capture 1 or Capture 2 on this setup I really love to hear about it as it is going to be a permanent setup if it works.
Sorry if the topic has been out there allready but couldn't find it so ...
Cheers.

HAve ou been able to get the Universal Control Driver to install on it?

I was under the assumption that it had to be installed on a minimum of OSX 10.6.8 which the G5 doesn't support. Without the driver you'll not be able to use Capture.

No, I have not yet installed anything. I was just hoping to be able to at least use Capture 1 on this old hack G5 to record in my Swedish studio and I live in Norway so it would be nice to know if it was futile or not.
Im going to use some of the oldest drivers to see if it is possible but properly not...
Still got my MacBook Pro and UAD/Laptop card so if not possible I got a solution and will use Capture 2 on that.
Also got some old PC's with pci slots for uad's to install there if all fails.

I know my PC is not necessarily up to the minimum specs. But it never had any issue running VSL (specifically, the spectrograph on top of the EQ) and Capture at the same time. With Capture 2 on the identical hardware, the spectrograph stuttered continuously.

I use the spectrograph live so I can visibly identify frequencies that ring when someone stops talking. Sometimes I make an adjustment, sometimes not, but at least I have the data.
With Capture 2 running, I can't do this with any practicality.

All this to say that Capture 2 (at least on PC) definitely takes up a little more in the resource department than Capture.

Thanks !!
It would be so nice if I could use the G5 Mac to capture recordings on as there is allready a Firewire 400 port on that and an 800 for external harddisks.
I maxed out the RAM and its quiet enogh to be in the control room. All I want to use it for is Capture and if Capture 2 isnt working then I was planning on using Capture 1 instead.
the Daw programs is on another mashine far away.
